A tough away derby was the match this saturday in the league and after a positive midweek draw at the top of the table in the college league, the lads were set for a tough game.

Lichfield did not start well and after only 10 mins of the game were 2 nil down and the home team had some momentum. After a positive teamwork and good preparation, it just goes to show its up to the players to mentally get right with their attitude and another learning curve was dealt.

We are always delighted to visit St Georges Park as our hosts are brilliant and the lads always are interested with the coaches that support them. Chelsea & West Ham academy coaches supported the students of the Lichfield City Academy to a penalty shootout win today. TJ with a great penalty before debutant Mitch saved the important sudden death penalty.
